Mr. BUTCHER:

With regard to the proposed amendment in section 4, I would like to suggest this to the minister: Would it not be necessary or advisable to make the same change in section 2, subsection 3, and sections S and 10 of the original act? The words are "approved by" in each case. Section 2, subsection 3 reads:

In any case where the affairs of a farmer have been arranged by a proposal approved by the court or confirmed by the board as here inafter provided-

And so forth. Section 10 reads:

Whenever a proposal has been approved bj the court.

Is it not necessary to change the words "approved by" to "filed in" in those sections also?

Mr. BUTCHER:

Then with reference to section 10 I would suggest that the minister take the matter into consideration because it seems to me that the words "filed in" should be substituted for the words "approved by" in each case, that is to say in subsection 3 of section 2 and sections 10 and 8 of the original act.

Mr. BUTCHER:

I should like to ask the Prime Minister a question. Subsection 5 says:

The employer of a person who holds a certificate of exemption under this act shall be liable to pay the like contributions as would be payable by him as employer's contributions if -that person were a person insured under this act, and in this act any reference to the employer's contribution shall be construed as including a contribution payable under this subsection.

Section 16 was rather glossed over, but I notice among the exempted persons under subsection (b) we have-

-a person who is employed in an occupation which is seasonal and does not ordinarily extend over more than twenty-two weeks in any year and who is not ordinarily employed in any other occupation which is insurable employment; or

(c) a person who habitually works for less than the ordinary working day-

I wonder why it is provided that in this case the employer must pay the contribution. Will the Prime Minister explain?
